In this week's Inside the Issues, the program welcomes David Dewitt, vice president of programs at CIGI and noted expert on international affairs. In a far-reaching conversation on the role of Canadian-based think tanks in shaping global governance policy, Dewitt identifies gaps in current thinking on international politics and explains how research institutions can look "beyond the horizon" to begin working on challenges before they arise.

Now in its second season, the Inside the Issues weekly podcast series will run from October 2011 to April 2012, covering timely and candid discussions on issues related to the core areas of CIGI expertise: Global Economy, Global Security & Politics, and International Law. Join host and CIGI Chair David Welch as he goes in depth with leading experts on the most pressing global governance challenges facing the international community today.
